Subject: Some tunes you don't hear everyday
A variety of tunes with various musicians sharing vocals.
Subject: You asked.....
Good recording here and enjoy them jamming together. Jorma and Jack were spreading their Hot Tuna wings at this time. Nice thick and gooey 60's rock!
Subject: An Unusual Treat
The Dead played this show with the Airplane. Further, the weird mix of tunes makes it a real treat. The best is the Wipe Out; I always knew Jerry had a little fondness for Dick Dale, and it comes through here by way of this Safaris tune.
Subject: Al Kooper?
Subject: i believe i was at this show...
Being from San Francisco, what I can say is that back in those days I used to go to most of the shows that the Airplane were on the bill of, especially when the Dead or Janis were on the same bill.
Since this was just a month or so after Altamont, I'm pretty sure Spencer Dryden was still with the Airplane and not Joey Covington.
It sounds like Jorma on ?Baby What You Want Me to Do?"
Sounds to me like Jerry on "Blue Moon."
This was around the time when groups like Sha Na Na were trying to revive the late fifties and early sixties sound, and I thought it was a bunch of shit at the time.
Now, all I can say is...
It seems like anything from back in those days makes me home sick...

Subject: The GRATEFUL DEAD "Live On Stage" at the Family Dog, Great Hwy, San Francisco, California, UNITED STATES OF AMERICA
On This Day in GRATEFUL DEAD History:
40 years ago today the DEAD were foolin' around at the Family Dog with the Jefferson Airplane.
Here's the show/rehearsal.
Not your standard set list you'd expect at a Jefferson Airplane/GRATEFUL DEAD show. But most people at this show couldnt' tell if the they were singing in key, or playing in time or in tune.
Jorma Kaukonen (Hot Tuna) sings/plays along with Jerry on "Baby What You Want Me to Do".
REEQUEST NIGHT AT THE FAMILY DOG get's you WIPE OUT...into Big Railroad Blues. lol
I guess this is what happens when Pigpen doesn't show up for a gig...the R&B turns to crap.
